In August 2012, Chelsea were in a rebuilding process after a frustrating season which resulted in the sack of André Villas-Boas.

Roberto Di Matteo had replaced his former boss and led Chelsea to a shocking and unprecedented Champions League glory. Di Matteo got the job on a permanent basis and signed a couple of young talents include Nigerian forward Victor Moses.

For Wigan, Moses’s pace and trickery from the flanks were already making waves in England and Chelsea decided to invest in the forward. Di Matteo looked at the forward as he chose to replace the spine of the old Chelsea.


It’s been four years after and Moses has been on loan to three sides since then; what has gone wrong, nobody knows.

He spent the full 2012/13 season at Stamford Bridge, scoring 10 goals in 43 appearances as Chelsea won the Europa League under Rafa Benitez who had come in to replace Di Matteo.

Jose Mourinho returned to the club in the summer of 2013 and never gave the Nigerian a chance, he was sent on loan to Liverpool where he scored two goals in 22 games, Stoke City the next season where he finished with four goals in 23 appearances and finally West Ham where he scored two goals in 26.

Aside some moments of top quality, Moses never really impressed during these loan spells-largely due to injuries. Many still, however, believe that he still has bundles of talent, yet to be delivered.

He has finally gotten that chance with Antonio Conte and he seems he is finally enjoying his time at Chelsea.

After impressing in pre-season, Moses already has two goals for Chelsea and looks like he is ready to take his chances.  

He has no other choice because after this there won’t be any chance left. It’s now or never for Moses at Chelsea.
